Can I just say that Virgin America is the coolest airline in the US? Can I get an amen? Richard Branson, I salute you for making flying sexy again. Mmm. Flat-screen mini-TVs, WiFi, leather seats...I wasn't sure if I was in a South Beach lounge or flying cross-continental to my new home.
Speaking of which -- news to my dearly devoted readers -- I'm back on the East Coast! After much packing and huffing, I've headed out to school in New York City! It's been such a shock moving from West Coast Seattle to the frenetic Big Apple. Mama, here, had to go sharpen her claws before she went out apartment-room hunting. After moving in for the kill, she nabbed a tiny shoebox room in an apartment that she hopes she'll be sharing with a (seems to be) sane roommate. I'll be sure to document my decorating process. Let's just say I'll have to be creative (the room is 7x10 ft.). Yeow.

Argh. It happened again: an inopportune hiatus! Where did July go aside? Well, Seattle is in a major heat wave (try experiencing 100-deg. weather in a non A/C city and apartment).

If you loved Helvetica, the documentary, like I did, you must be SUPER EXCITED to see what the filmmakers' next project is about: product design. Meet Objectified. It covers the interesting world of product and industrial design and the creators behind them.
Here's what their website summarizes: "Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the designers who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability. "
Just look at this A-team roster, some of whom I know and some I don't:
Paola Antonelli (Museum of Modern Art, New York)
Chris Bangle (BMW Group, Munich)
Tim Brown (IDEO)
Anthony Dunne (London)
Dan Formosa (Smart Design)
Naoto Fukasawa (Tokyo)
Jonathan Ive (Apple, California)
Hella Jongerius (Rotterdam)
David Kelley (IDEO)
Bill Moggridge (IDEO)
Marc Newson (London/Paris)
Fiona Raby (London)
Dieter Rams (Kronberg, Germany)
Karim Rashid (New York)
Alice Rawsthorn (International Herald Tribune)
Davin Stowell (Smart Design)
Jane Fulton Suri (IDEO)
Rob Walker (New York Times Magazine)
Gawwwwd. I can't wait and Seattle is getting a sneak preview in early June!
